MainActivity.java

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.View;

import android.widget.ImageView;


public class Animation12 extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_animation12);

        final Animation animation = AnimationUtils.loadAnimation(getApplicationContext(), R.anim.translate);
        final ImageView imageView = findViewById(R.id.image);
        imageView.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                imageView.startAnimation(animation);
            }
        });
    }
}

anim/translate.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<set xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
